Effective Leadership in Housing and Development


Webinar Description

More than half of renters in California and a third of homeowners are cost burdened – or spend more than a third of their income on housing. This webinar will provide an overview of California’s housing crisis, the development process, barriers to more housing development and the basics of the regional housing needs assessment (RHNA) allocations and help local elected officials navigate their role in addressing the housing crisis.
